President's Welcome

Welcome from President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Todd Mondor

I am both excited and humbled to return to my alma mater as its next President and Vice-Chancellor. 

The University of Winnipeg is known for its long-standing commitments to prioritizing student-success, offering outstanding academic and research programs, supporting Indigenous achievement, embracing inclusivity, and fostering meaningful connections to the community, and it is a privilege to be in a position to help build upon and strengthen these commitments.

I am looking forward to getting to know the students, faculty, and staff, as well as friends and supporters, who all play a role in making UWinnipeg the welcoming and supportive institution that it is, and who have persevered and succeeded, both collectively and individually, through the tremendous disruption caused by the pandemic. 

It is important to me that all members of the UWinnipeg community feel supported and respected, and know that their contributions matter and their voices are heard.  So, please don't hesitate to share your thoughts and hopes. 

In working together, we will ensure both that UWinnipeg continues to excel in all the ways that make it such a special place, and that it moves forward to an even brighter future.
